For recording artist, actor, and performer Reid Soria, Autism Sings is the culmination of years spent overcoming the odds. Diagnosed with autism at the age of 3, Reid was never expected to be able to communicate or connect with the world around him. Now 31, Reid has channeled his talents and sheer grit into an unprecedented story of hope. And in finding his own voice, Reid has found a new voice for autism and is communicating and connecting beyond what was once considered possible. Follow the story and become a part of the dream. When words fail, Autism Sings!

Reid, wearing his pink, singing the National Anthem at the opening ceremonies of the Making Strides Against Cancer event at the Santa Rosa Mall. Reid was selected as one of the Real Men Wear Pink members and raised funds to fight against breast cancer.
Reid performed the National Anthem at the annual Veteran's Day Ceremony at Beal Cemetery on Nov 11. He also sang God Save the Queen in observance of Remembrance Day for the British military members who were present. Pictured at right is Reid with Sam Lombardo, Battle of the Bulge and WWII veteran.
Autism Sings has developed an Autism Awareness program and it is especially designed for schools and students. The program includes Jo Soria, RN, discussing autism and how it may relate to students, discussing how we can learn to reach out to those who may have various differences, encouraging students to try new experiences that will help broaden their horizons, and encouraging students to work hard to overcome obstacles. Included in the program were Reid singing a few relevant songs, and interaction with the students as they sang and danced along with him. Our multimedia presentation includes PowerPoint slides of Reid overcoming his own obstacles and a short video clip of Reid singing and dancing with the Fred Astaire Studio dancers at the Mattie Kelly Arts Theater. Last school year, the Okaloosa School District Title I Office invited Autism Sings to present our program to four schools and invited us back for the current school year. Like the previous presentations, this year's program has met with rave reviews from students and teachers. The goal of our program is to reach a young generation about autism, acceptance, and working hard to realize their dreams. Contact us if you would like to discuss the 45-60 minute program for your school, camp, or event.
